The conveyancing process for Earley property
Finding your conveyancing quote - Whilst you may undertake the conveyancing process yourself, most buyers and sellers have neither the technical expertise nor the time, deciding instead to go for a conveyancing solicitor. Remember to check the terms and conditions for additional hidden fees prior to instructing.
Instructing a solicitor - Before your lawyer is able to start the legal work for your Earley transaction, it will be necessary to officially appoint them. You absolutely must check any terms of business for any concealed fees like costs for acting the mortgage company , before you consent to them.
The pre-contract stage - The property lawyer, once instructed, will make contact with the other sides [2var5] to agree the draft contract. This document specifies details of prices, the two parties, other information about the transaction such as deposits, and information from the sellers title deeds. The final version is agreed by the buyers and sellers conveyancing solicitors, and a preliminary date may also be agreed to complete.
Book a RICS Surveyor to view the property - A survey is required so you can be made aware of if there are any structural problems e.g. wood worm and boundary issues. Clay soil is a possible local problem found in Berkshire.
Earley conveyancing searches - There are four standard searches recommended by lawyers. These are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental, and they look into numerous issues including whether the property is connected to public drains.
Exchange of contracts - Contracts are signed by the seller and buyer and exchanged by their solicitor, binding them to go through with the sale and purchase.
Completion - On a set day, the buyer can then pick up, usually from the agent, the keys to their new house once the sellers solicitor confirms that they have received the funds that is due.
